Flashes of Hope has photographed over 87,000 children with cancer and other life-threatening illnesses across the country since 2001.
When a child or teenager is diagnosed with cancer, trips to the hospital instantly become the new routine. Isolated from school, siblings and friends, it can be a challenge to find reasons to smile. Yet, children with cancer find a way.
We are honored to be there to capture those smiles and forever preserve images of courage, beauty and dignity. By focusing on the child, we put cancer in the background.
Every year, we provide free portrait packages to 5,000 children in 55 cities across the country. Each family is presented with a mounted enlargement, proofs and a digital photo gallery of all the images. The portraits help the children see themselves in a new light. The images are not of sick kids, but of strong and beautiful children filled with hope. For too many families, the portrait is the last one they have of their child.
The Baltimore Chapter was founded in 2007 by the extraordinary Leslie Landsman who has served as the volunteer Chapter Director for over 15 years. Thank you for helping to support Flashes of Hope. To make a donation of any size click here or select from an amount below.
